December 1, 2017
Ed Sheeran teams with Beyonce to remix "Perfect." Matt Lauer's lawyers look for a golden parachute, while Megyn Kelly looks for a new job. Plus how Pam Anderson deals with Hollywood and more! The Internet virtually imploded yesterday because Ed Sheeran and Beyonce released a duet remix of his song "Perfect."

It started out with Moore saying something along the lines of "How dare you disrespect Christian values? Come down here to Alabama, and deal with me like a man." And Kimmel said "Well when you get some Christian values, I'll come deal with you." It ended when Kimmel said he'd come to Alabama to talk with Moore... but he'd be leaving his daughters at home. Note to Mr. Moore-- Jimmy Kimmel is quick and witty, and he's got the camera every night. Megyn Kelly is eyeing Matt Lauer's job??? Page Six is running with the rumor that she's after Lauer's job. She's currently hosting the 9 o'clock hour of NBC's Today. Kelly said "I think powerful women need to be there for less powerful women, so they can grow into powerful women." Megyn had Pam Anderson on her show, and Anderson said she learned from a few guys how to navigate Hollywood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dv5hTeWTLUo Matt Lauer's lawyers are working to get a $30 million payout from NBC and we say good luck with that, because the morals clause in a television contract can specify that talent could be fired without pay if they bring the company into any disrepute. Video surfaced of Meredith Vieira interviewing Matt Lauer on her show. She told a story of how she walked into his office, snooping around, and found a bag of sex toys. Lauer claimed it was because they had a sex therapist on the show, who left behind a goodie bag. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiG8tVQRx5A The next day, something even more embarrassing happened... when the Secret Service found the bag. Laura Bush was on the show a day later, and the Secret Service came with dogs to sweep the dressing rooms. Saturday Night Live is getting into the wine business! They just launched a line of wines in collaboration with Lot 18 which includes four varieties-- Merlot, Chardonnay, Beaujolais, and a Red Blend-- each with specialty labels commemorating iconic sketch characters from the show.
